Note: At the 2009 IABPA meeting in Portland, OR, USA, the IABPA membership voted to adopt the SWGSTAIN recommended terminology.
- [A bloodstain pattern created when a volume of blood has been absorbed by an object.]*
This pattern was generated by holding a blood source above the clothing long enough that the blood was absorbed by the material and created bleed though.
